Airliner crashes near Los Angeles due to unusual string of coincidences. Stewardess, who is sole survivor, joins airline executives in discovering the causes of the crash.Written by

The fictional airliner in Fate is the Hunter is a DC-7, substantially altered to look like a contemporary jet airliner, but not resemble any that actually existed. Because of the theme (and to avoid spoiling an excellent ending), no airline or aircraft manufacturer would have anything to do with the movie, and any resemblance to an actual aircraft would invite litigation. Curiously, there are aspects to the fake wings that are almost 30 years ahead of their time. See more »
The aircraft used for this movie - cobbled together from a Douglas propeller airliner - would be impossibly tail heavy with tail-mounted engines. The wings are too far forward. If it managed to achieve flight, it would instantly stall and crash. See more »
A complicated little film showing that the obvious isn't always the truth. A passenger aircraft crashes while being flown by the stereotypical risk-taking, flamboyant pilot, leaving only one survivor. With him dying in the crash, it doesn't take the vultures long before they are clamouring for an excuse to point the finger of blame his way. His long time friend and airline boss sets out to prove that it wasn't so, and through a fascinating series of flashbacks and vignettes, the not-so-obvious plot unwinds into a wonderful vindication of his dead friend. Absolutely astounding actors and a solid script make this a must see. It takes time and effort to watch the subtleties unwind but it makes it worth the effort.
